Anyone wishing to present a wage scale at a Common Construction Wage hearing may do so, however there are a few statutory and legal requirements that must be met.  In brief, the scales must be surveyed wages and fringes being paid in the project county.  These wages and fringes should have supporting evidence to show that they are actually being paid.  Per IC 5-16-7-1, a Skilled, Semiskilled, and Unskilled rate must be provided for each classification of labor presented.  Later case law (Union Township School Corporation v. State of Indiana) also defines that an hourly “Fringe Benefit” should be adopted for each skill level, and that the wages must be configured using the mode.  For more information concerning wage scale format, please call: (317) 232-2655 or visit:
